The Weslaco Museum has an extensive collection of artifacts and archives, many of which are on regular display. However, we have such a large collection that we cannot possibly exhibit all of our items at once. Artifacts - objects - are kept in our storage room, cataloged into several groups: kitchen & housewares; cameras; clothing, hats & shoes; military & civic duty; geology; as well as several others. Archives - papers and documents - are kept in our records room. Artifacts and archives are made available for research to those individuals who submit a formal request.
